Last week, Nubia CEO Ni Fei posted an image on Weibo showing the company's upcoming Nubia Z18 with minimal bezels. According to the company executive, the Z18 will do one better than Nubia's last flagship, the Z17s, a device said to boast of a 90.36% screen-to-body ratio.
It would seem Nubia's CEO wasn't all talk, as live images of the Z18 have surfaced, showing the device with extremely slim bezels. Nubia flagships may have their issues but the company has always brought its A-game to the design department. The Nubia Z17, for example, was a 16:9 device but featured a brilliant design with incredibly slim bezels. It's no surprise, then, that the new iteration in the company's premium lineup does even better.
The image has the Z18 without any bezels on the sides. Sadly, there's a wonky reflection that prevents us from getting a good look at the top of the device. Previous schematics had the showed the device featuring a small, circular notch—a la Essential PH-1—though.
